HC Deb 14 April 1937 vol 322 cc1001-2
59. Mr. Roland Robinson

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what legislation will be necessary in order to carry into effect the recommendations of the Maybury Committee; and how far can the recommendations be carried into effect without Parliamentary action?

Sir P. Sassoon

As regards the first part of the question, so far as can be seen no legislation will be necessary. As regards the second part, further Parliamentary action will be required in regard to a draft Order for the licensing of air transport and commercial flying which will be laid before both Houses in due course in accordance with Section 5 of the Air Navigation Act, 1936.

Mr. Robinson

Can the right hon. Gentleman say how soon this matter will be brought before the House?

Sir P. Sassoon

These recommendations were only approved in March of this year. I cannot say exactly when they will be brought before the House.
